## Infinity exists regardless of mankind's ability to conceptualize it.

Thought experiment:

Let's say we figuratively put everything in existence into a box. In order for that box to take shape as a 6 sided construct, we have essentially created boundaries to what is inside the box and what is outside the box.

What is outside the box is the continuation of infinity whether it be infinite solid, space or matter interspersed with space.

Infinity therefore cannot be bounded and cannot be measured. No limit exists as well as no point of origin. Infinity has always been infinite.

Now due to the universal truth that is infinity and I say that to mean that we can always trust infinity to be the quality of infinite, we can then know that infinity is a quality that can be applicable to an infinite number of qualities.

Infinitely large

Infinitely small

Infinite time

Infinite space

Infinite matter

Infinite levels of intelligence or life forms

Infinite forms of energy

On and on because infinity has room for everything.

Infinity has its concept and function in mathematics, but I think infinity proves itself to exist in the physical realm as well.

If infinity is limited, then educate me on the word that is that which is beyond infinity. If this is so, then our definition of infinity is incorrect.

Thank you

The reason of this is that "infinity" is only a mathematical concept designed to deal with numbers beyond human comprehension. Consider the number of grains of sand in a beach, it maybe so overwhelmingly huge that for practical proposes you can safely consider it infinite, but sure as the sun, there is a finite number of them, the same applies for the atoms in the universe, etc.
